In anticipation for the presentation, many fans have been speculating what they expect from these upcoming announcements. Some want to see more information on Cyber Shadow, a new ninja action game with an 8-bit aesthetic. Others are looking forward to more information on King of Cards, the final content drop planned for Shovel Knight. This last expansion will allow you to play as King Knight and will feature 30 new courses. At this time, a release date for the expansion is unknown and has already undergone multiple delays.
Others are hoping to see more Shovel Knight-related Amiibo.
The prolific developer is responsible for one of the generation’s most beloved 8-bit throwbacks, with Shovel Knight nailing many aspects of old NES games, including the music, art, and controls. Since its original release in 2014, Shovel Knight has seen multiple content drops, following the game’s successful Kickstarter campaign.
